Tom Coughlin rumors: Philadelphia Eagles focused on former Giants coach?

Could this really happen?

Jim O'Connor-USA TODAY Sports

The New York Giants have their new coach in Ben McAdoo. Their old one, Tom Coughlin, could be heading to the Philadelphia Eagles.

Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports reported that the Eagles and Coughlin spoke for a second time on Wednesday and were expected to do so again on Thursday.

Would Coughlin, after 12 years with the Giants and two Super Bowl victories, actually coach the NFC East rival Eagles? Well, really why not? Bill Parcells coached the New York Jets, New England Patriots and Dallas Cowboys after leaving the Giants. If Coughlin wants to work, and he apparently does, why wouldn't he go to Philly?

Would Coughlin be the right hire for Philly? Who knows? Who cares? It certainly would be weird to see Coughlin on the Eagles sideline. And it certainly would turn up the volume on the already intense Giants-Eagles rivalry.

Your thoughts, Giants fans?
